Budgeting

Money - and how to make it work for you!

 

Budgeting is a skill that needs to be learned but it's one that will be essential for you throughout your life. Moving into private accommodation makes it even more important to know how much money you have coming in and going out.

If you rely on student finance, you will be used to your money coming in three chunks throughout the year.  Whilst that is great whilst you live in halls, it becomes a challenge when your bills start arriving each month!  

ASK have produced a budget calculator to help you work out your monthly income, remind you of the kind of things you may have to pay out for and see what's left over. 

Our Finance pages have lots of advice on but if you prefer to have more detailed budgeting help ASK advisers can go through your money with you, working out where you can cut back and giving tips and ideas on making your money go further.
